Five Probiotic-Packed Fermented Foods

August 29th, 2014
Fermented foods come with some major health benefits. Here are the top five probiotic-packed fermented foods.

A few days ago we told you probiotics may help you prevent high blood pressure. It could be one of the easiest things you do to help protect your heart. But the benefits of probiotics go way beyond heart health… It’s a long list of perks—from a whiter smile to easing allergies.

Getting enough probiotics isn’t always easy. Most people rely on yogurts. They don’t provide nearly enough and are usually loaded with sugar. This deletes all the benefits anyway. Some people take supplements. It’s a good idea. But fermented foods are another option. Lucky for us, their rising popularity is making them easier to find.

Here are our top five probiotic-packed fermented foods:

1. Kimchi: This popular Korean dish uses fermented Chinese cabbage as its base. But it gets mixed with probiotic-feeding foods like garlic and onion. This means more potent germs. It also comes with a lot of heat from hot pepper flakes. But studies show that kimchi can help obese subjects lower their blood pressure, shed body fat, and even stabilize blood sugar.

Protect Your Heart With Bacteria

Probiotics may be one of the easiest ways to help shield your heart from this deadly condition… Even if you’re already living with it.

As Health Watch readers you know how important probiotics are for independent healing.

Their main job is to help balance and replenish your gut bacteria. This helps keep your immune system strong against invading germs. Gut balance is also critical for proper digestion. It can even help you lose body fat. But the benefits of probiotics go further than that…

This Deadly Smog Can Stop Your Heart

It’s more than just gross. Air pollution could put your heart—even your life—at serious risk.

You might not think about air pollution until you smell fumes or see smog. Even then, you may think it’s more gross than dangerous. But it may be one of the most overlooked—and dangerous—threats as you age. And not just for your lungs.

Air pollution is responsible for more than 3.2 million deaths per year. Surprisingly, most are the result of heart—not lung—damage.1 And a new study from the U.K. shows things may be worse than we thought…

Ignore The Study: This Dangerous Drug Won’t Prevent Dementia

Taking this type 2 diabetes medication to protect your brain could destroy your health in the process.

Fighting off dementia with a simple pill may sound too good to be true… And unfortunately it is.

A recent study by The German Center for Neurodegenerative Disease followed 145,717 seniors over the course of six years. They found that taking the diabetes medication Actos lowered dementia risk by about 6%.1

It’s not exactly an overwhelming effect… But these results somehow “prove” what doctors have thought for some time: Diabetes drugs may also work in your brain to help prevent dementia—even Alzheimer’s disease (AD).

In theory, it makes sense…

Some experts call AD “type 3” diabetes. We told you in the 2013 issue of Natural Health Dossier thatyour brain relies on insulin and glucose to help regulate hormones. It also uses them to make connections between neurons. But having type 2 diabetes increases your risk for AD by as much as 65%. It also makes you up to three times more likely to develop dementia. And Big Pharma is trying hard to capitalize on this connection.
